Circus Electrique Release Date: Everything We Know So Far


The Game Awards 2021 gave our our first glimpse of a ton of exciting upcoming titles with one of them being Circus Electrique – a unique story-driven RPG game that’s set in Victorian steampunk London.

And in this article we’ll be telling you everything we’ve gathered so far on the upcoming RPG game.

Developed by Zen Studios, Circus Electrique sees a team of circus staffers try to save London after its residents “mysteriously” become “vicious killers” – at the same time ensuring the shows must go on. The game’s antagonist include rogue sailors, aggressive posh girls, bobbies gone bad and others.


The circus crew on the other hand includes Fire Blowers, Clowns, Strongmen, Escape Artists and others that make up a stunning total of 14 playable classes that you can use to create a fine strategy in turn-based battles. From the trailer, we can see that the game has a tactical mechanic to it which gives out the fact that it involves circus management as well.

Circus Electrique Gameplay

In Circus Electrique, you aren’t able to play as a solo protagonist but as a team of circus members with each of them possessing a special and unique skill that you can use in battle.

You must be able to balance the fighting side of the game with practicing for your performances afterwards. The success of each show is dictated by how you performers perform with each other, their skills and chemistry alignment makes up for a successful show and lets you make more money.


Your ultimate goal however, is not to make money alone but use your gifted performers to step up and defend the city of London from the citizens that have mysteriously and unexpectedly turned into violent and murderous creatures.
